Ambassador Hotel – 1935

From the Windsor Daily Star – December, 1935:

    Representative of one the the major remodelling works in downtown Windsor during 1935, is the Ambassador Hotel, Sandwich street at Goyeau, opposite the Canadian National terminal station. Complete structural changes, painting and decorating, inside and out, were executed in transforming the appearance and appointments of the entire building. An olde English front replaces the former Sandwich street side. Besides exterior remodelling, the entire main floor including an upstairs dining room has been re-designed, decorated and furnished to carry out the olde English motif. A charming ladies’ beverage room, finished in matched chestnut and equipped with special furniture and furnishing, adjoins the main entrance. The rotunda and beverage dispensing space has been completely remodelled and decorated. The Men’s beverage room, with entrance off Goyeau street, follows out the olde English scheme. Rough sawn wainscotting and ceiling beams with a heavy block composition floor, along with antique bracket lighting fixtures, create a striking effect in this room. Every room is equipped with running water and modern furnishings. Mrs. N. M. McNamara is the proprietor of the Ambassador which rates as one of the three leading hotels in Windsor. Scores of travellers make it their Windsor home.
